Hi

I’m really not over sepsis although its been 10 days since I was released from the hospital. If you are reading this I would like to share my story. I’m a busy gal. I thought cranberry juice and those UTI symptoms would get better. (Sepsis and Urinary Tract Infections) They didn’t. I did not want to go to the doctor and get on antibiotics AGAIN.

I had been showing all the signs of sepsis for weeks. Running to the cardiologist for this and that test of why my heart was pounding my temperature was 96.0. In the mean time, the chills and fever started and my legs swelled up with a rash. I took myself to a trusted hospital and was admitted and IV antibiotics were started. The lactic acid results were 911. I was in pain and still am. The emotional part is true. Please support your loved ones, it’s not their fault. Sepsis is a killer. Believe me, my testament is glad to be alive!
